Ultimate V3X Prevention

Post by UlquiorraSan on Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:57 am

Hi guys, in this post, I am going to show you how to:
PREVENT V3X MISSLE FROM KILLING YOUR HUMAN

What is the V3X Missle?
- An item that can only be used by Vampires.
- Coolsdown at the 10:00 mark of elasped game time.
- Restocking takes 2:00 minutes.
- Maximum of 1 stock per time.
- Costs 1250 gold.
- Has a global casting range.
- Shoots a slow moving missle at an enemy organic unit and kills it instantly upon contact.

Why is the V3X Missle used?
- A method to kill Humans faster or when the Vampire knows the opponent is not focusing on his/her Human.
- Used as a final resort when the Vampire is unable to break down the opponent's base.

How do you avoid the V3X Missle?
TECHNIQUE #1 - Blink repeatedly around the map (as far away as possible) for 30 seconds and pausing a while with each blink for about 5 seconds. (I do not know how this works but it has been proved effective.)

TECHNIQUE #2 - Training a few fake Humans to trick the Vampire. (This move is rather risky and wastes resources.)

TECHNIQUE #3 - Hiding your Human in a crowded/covered spot where it becomes very hard to find and select. (I do not use this method because it still has a chance of being targeted.)

TECHNIQUE #4 - Sending your Slayer to buy the V3X Missle every single time it restocks. (Effective but quite expensive during middle game at around 11:00 minutes ++)

TECHNIQUE #5 - Observe the Vampire occasionally to check if he/she has casted the V3X Missle on your Human and wait for the V3X Missle to approach your Human. Then cast Divine Shield when the V3X is upon you. (Can be countered with Soul Burn or a high AOE stun.)

TECHNIQUE #FINAL - When you know the Vampire has casted a V3X Missle on your Human, select your Human and click on the Switch Gender item on the top right of your inventory ( Numpad 8 ). Afterthat, you're safe. Thats right, that is all there is to this technique and I use this all the time and it has never failed me before. You don't even have to move a single step after pressing the Switch Gender item. You can then continue with your work without worry. (This techinique is actually a bug and it is 100% effective. Just make sure the Vampire has already shot the V3X Missle at you and that your Human doesn't get stunned. Soul Burn's Silence does not affect this technique in any way.)


How do I know when the Vampire has shot a V3X Missle?
- When you hear a missle being shot (Can only be heard when Vampire fires the missle at a range of approximately 2k)
- Build a few goldmines but do not stack them above the Vampire's base where there are 2 uphill slopes and there, you can scout the shops 24/7. Just check them occasionally after the 10:00 mark and if you see the V3X Missle on cooldown, you know the Vampire has bought it. (There is a trick the Vampire could use to bluff you that he/she has shot the V3X Missle but did not.)
- Get a Slayer and buy some Sentry Wards/Eye of Seeing at one of the Vampire's shops and place the ward where ever you want to scout for the Vampire. Also reveals nearby invisible units. (I think warding is very similar to the building of goldmines in the Vampire's base because the only purpose of warding is to SCOUT for the Vampire. Other uses could be like having a further range of invisibility detection than Wall of Seeing in order to be able to attack the Vampire earlier or deal more damage to it when the Vampire retreats from your base or you are too lazy/unresourceful to cast Reveal.
- Build 2 - 3 Command Centres during late game to permanently reveal the whole map and stalk the Vampire as you will know his every single move. (Greatly annoys the Vampire and foils his/her master plans.)

I do not believe that TECHNIQUE #FINAL works because it is just too unbelievable
- Try it out yourself and see if it works.
- I am not 100% sure on how this bug works, but i believe that the triggers are at fault and it goes like this - If unit uses item > Pause unit for 2.5 seconds > If unit is not dead after 2.5 seconds > Replace current unit with unit Male/Female.
I believe the fault lies with replacing the current unit with another unit.
I concluded this because Switch Gender could negate the effects of Soul Burn as well.

Thank You Very Happy

Nice guide, I didn't know about switch gender Very Happy I'll have to test it out.
I used to surround my human with buildings leaving only a small spot where I can build a goldmine in order to "blink" out to the nearest free space as the missile is about to hit.

V3x is only 1250gold for crying out loud. Just get ur slayer to buy it and keep the item at cooldown. Kill the vamp and gg the game!

There is no luck involved in setting a constant cooldown on a vamp item. By 10mins u should have at least 2k gold. And on top of that, buying the item shows u are monitoring the cooldown and the vamp. So u will know when he is coming.

If vamp is as capable as you and you both have the same amount of delay, then if you both try, there's a 50% chance he can buy v3x before you do. And what do you mean see him coming? v3x can be bought with research center.
Besides banking 1.25k gold at 10minuts when vamp can be knocking at your door with items like heart of blood doesn't seem like a good strategy to me.

Do u know how much a heart of blood costs? 4500gold. Would u feed a vamp that much? Thats pretty stupid then. 1.25kgold is not much and yes it can be bought with the vamp research centre but u can still see the item there if the vamp bought it. And after that, reveal whole map with ur cc skill. Its 10mins thus u should be having a cc. If the vamp uses the v3x then switch gender. Like i said, no such thing as luck. Its all based on how u play and how u keep the vamp in ur sight as well as how fast u farm gold.

englocked said "LIKE", it could have been CoD, you never pointed out buying then selling CoD.

the thing is that you can always monitor yourself and the vamp, but not your allies. i mean it really is possible for vamp to even have more than 10k before 10th minute if all your allies feed the vamp.

Vlad, the strategy of buying v3x before vamp does is luck based and hurts your income thus making it harder to defend against vamp.

Now I couldn't care less how you deal with that, I'm just saying I don't like that strategy for those reasons.

I also dislike strategies relying on the fact that you and your allies won't feed vamp much.

And to be honest, a game without feeders isn't worth playing.
